I’m not a big Punisher fan, but of all the Punisher adaptations we’ve received lately, Thomas Jane’s was close to the character we know in the comics. It’s just a shame the movie’s script and setting didn’t do his work justice.
That being said, Thomas Jane wants you to know that he truly knows what the character is about. Hence, the following video (NSFW: language and blood)
If this is a plug to get a web series going, I’m all for it.
What could be more fun than rambling with my good friend Gary Cooke? An actual format to our show!
C2E2 dominates the bulk of this session with talks of Greg Rucka writing Punisher, Mark Waid writing Daredevil, Dollhouse becoming a comic, and Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley starting a new creator-owned series called Brilliant (about time they realized my awesomeness….send the checks my way, please. No? Ok…grumble..grumble…)
We then travel into the movie and TV terrain to discuss Darren Aronofsky dropping off the next Wolverine movie and the “revealing” pic of Adrianne Palicki in Wonder Woman attire. I don’t know where Hollywood is going with these franchises, but it’s not my cup of tea so far.
Lastly, Gary takes us into history where Abraham Lincoln supposedly had a lot more time on his hands looking for vampires to kill to boost his approval ratings. Now we have a film and potential comic on hand to dig more into the mythology. More details here.

Tim and I talk about how we got into comics, some favorite story lines, authors, and artists. We then review Watchmen, no spoilers, and a little bit about what Neil Gaiman is doing with Batman.
